Violent electrical storm in Oklahoma early morning hours of the 4th was the most amazing and scary storm that I have ever been in. It started just as
day broke and the I checked the online doppler and a range of storms had appeared out of nowhere, a thin bank going across the entire n to s diameter
of the state. When I awoke, the thunder actually sounded like bombs going off that the flash of lightening would coorelate with the exact sound of
the boom. The house would shake and the the ground would shake. The scary part was not only the geographical way that the storm showed itself in the
state, but also that the lightening was so intense and that their was no rolling thunder up in the sky. It was just the clap noises that came from
the ligtening bolt hitting the ground. When I looked out the window, there was no clouds over my house, just a weird fog. It was spooky. I grew up
in Oklahoma but I have also lived for about 10 years in the mountains of Arizona. I have never, never seen any type of storm like this before. I
think something different is going on and I definitely think that we need to understand lightening better for the future. These storms are getting
more violent and man have developed no way to be safe from these electrical bombs dropping from the sky.
Now you have to realize, I live in tornado alley...and the place on Earth that has had the highest wind speeds ever measureed were seen. But.....this
was the scariest, spookiest storm I have ever seen. tornadoes are common, these lightening strikes were something else.
